History of the Z28's First 25 Years

Z28 is the most famous Chevrolet RPO code ever. No other option code has become so synonymous with high performance. Other option codes have been used for well-known packages such as Z22 and Z27, but the option names/descriptions became famous, not the RPO number.

Windy City Warriors

From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.


Classic Car Overview

This is the perfect 1965 Backdraft Shelby Cobra 427 for both show and go. After all, who doesnt love a shimmering version of a timelessly attractive color combo? But beneath the surface lies a fully independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, beefy five-speed gearbox, and performance-built small block stroked to the famous 427 displacement. This Cobra has an instant touch of sophistication. After all, black is the color of intimidation. But when its this glossy, and paired with champagne gold racing stripes, theres a lot of style within its aggression. And of course, this high luster finish does a terrific job of highlighting all the rounded panels that make every enthusiast fall in love instantly. It also helps that Backdraft offers one of the highest quality bodies in the Cobra industry. Thats why the fit and finish on this particular car is worthy of all the extra scrutiny its likely to get at shows. Its set up as an SC, so it has the fender flares, jacking stubs instead of bumpers, chrome roll hoop, and all the other fixtures that define the Cobra today. And the ten-spoke Halibrand-style wheels have a champagne tone to go so well with the racing stripes. The interior has a thoughtful design with good details, like nice carpeting and good bottom bolstering to the classic-style bucket seats. This even comes with a full soft top with side curtains and a racing tonneau. The four-point racing harnesses, a grippy sports steering wheel, toggle switches, and a dash dominated by gauges are all part of a package designed to keep you going faster. Plus there are cool classic Cobra touches, like the reversed speedometer and a forward-tilted gearstick. The engine bay has a tidy look, and there are the right Cobra pieces, like the long air grabber and matching valve covers. But what youll really like here is the investment in performance. It starts with a 351 cubic-inch V8 stroked to 427ci total. That means small block size with a big block displacement. Its built with go-fast goodies like AFR aluminum heads, a Demon four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock RPM Air-Gap aluminum intake, and ceramic-coated headers feeing those growling side pipes. There are also the right supporting components, like an MSD ignition, electric fans, and an Optima battery mounted over the rear axle for good weight distribution. You are in complete control of the V8s symphony thanks to the Tremec TKO five-speed manual transmission. On the road or racetrack, youll feel the added confidence the fully independent suspension gives you, and the feeling of the road is instantly transmitted to your fingertips. Add in four-wheel disc brakes and wide sport tires, and you have the full fun package built for power and control. With less than 4,200 miles on this build, this is your dream Cobra done right. So hurry before this Backdraft falls into someone elses hands. Call today!!!
